“The thought of tossing our baby in the fireplace first popped into my head a month or so ago.” Wow, what a brilliant short story! “The Fireplace” kept me on my toes the entire time, it was creepy and insane from the very first sentence. The ending was shocking, I gasped out loud, I really loved it! Loved the narration as well, the author did an amazing job by narrating the story, I felt like he was reading me by the fireplace. I highly recommend reading this short story to any horror lover, it definitely is worth it!
